Question Need Memory Card for Mini 9 - 11-10-2009, 04:53 PM

Hi, Im trying to find an SDHC card for my reader, preferably around 16GB+. I'd like to get the fastest cards around but I'm not sure the mini can take them.

Can it take the 6 class?
Are there cards even higher than 32?

Links would be appreciated! Thanks.

32GB is the limit for SDHC. The forthcoming SDXC cards can be bigger. I dunno if SDXC cards could be read by the Mini's reader.

The Mini 9's reader hardware is at least as fast as my SanDisk Extreme 20MBps SD card, which is faster than most class 6 cards. But some Linux distros don't get the full speed (driver differences?). I dunno about the drivers in other OSs.

The mini can definitely take fast cards. There are no SDHC card beyond 32gb. If price is not a problem, these will be good.

Look for a Class VI device. AFAIK, this is still currently the fastest SDHC cards available. 16GB cards are not as bad anymore pricewise. Check out Newegg.com as well.
